A sailor's prayer

The Navigator


Re-calibrate me, Holy One.
Set the focus of my heart
Against the compass of your love,
Aligning thoughts and deeds
To your divine direction.

Fill the tattered sails of my existence
With your Spirit breath,
Blowing where you will.
Take me to transforming shores
Where shoals await
Your gathering.

And some day,
When the task is done,
Steer me within the haven of your heart.
